Behind Two Princes by Spin Doctors

Two Princes is a song by American rock group Spin Doctors, released in 1992 by Epic as the second single from the group’s debut album, Pocket Full of Kryptonite (1991).

– The song was written by the four members of the band: Chris Barron, Aaron Comess, Eric Schenkman, and Mark White.
– The song is about a poor prince who tries to convince a girl to choose him over a rich prince, using the refrain “Just go ahead now”.
– The phrase “just go ahead now” was inspired by a friend of the band named Mickett Wilder, who used to say it to encourage Barron to pursue a girl he liked.
– The song was originally played faster, but the band slowed it down in the studio to make it more catchy and clear.
– The song was a huge hit, reaching number seven on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the Cash Box Top 100. It also topped the charts in Iceland and Sweden and peaked within the top 10 in many other countries.
– The song earned the band a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group in 1994.
– The band filmed two different music videos for the song, one in black-and-white and one in color. The black-and-white version was directed by Richard Murray and premiered in February 1992.
– The song was ranked number 41 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs of the ’90s” and number 21 on Blender magazine’s “50 Worst Songs Ever”.
